Bamberger: I liked the 18th better when Jack Neville built it at Pebble Beach.
Van Sickle: I don't know that it's a great hole, but number 4, that short par-4 with the crazy green, is entertaining. Watching balls land is like watching a Ping-Pong match. They put the tees up, it's drivable. You see guys putting for eagle, you see guys chunking wedge shots from awkward lies into the pond and making doubles and triples.
Hack: I like 4 as well. You can hit anything from six-iron to driver off the tee. Plus, that approach is a tough little shot.
Anonymous Pro: One of my favorites is number 13, the par-3. It's a medium-length par-3 (181 yards), not the ridiculously long 230-yarders that we're seeing all the time on Tour. It's a nice six- or seven-iron, and the green is convoluted with assorted humps and bumps. You see 1s there, you see 5s and 6s there. It's one of the more fun holes we play all year.
Bamberger: The coolest thing the Stadium course has is an absolutely kick-ass driving range. Between the range and short-game area, you could spend the whole day there. Vijay Singh wears out that place.
Shipnuck: My favorite spot is the player parking lot. Every player has a designated spot. Lot of guys drive their own wheels. It's fun to see their heavy metal and pimped-out rides.
Bamberger: And then you see Furyk's minivan among the hot cars.
Hack: Davis Love has that huge black Hummer-slash-Army tank. That thing is a beast.
Shipnuck: I think he may be overcompensating for something.
The Winner Is ...
